Florida Woman Who Posed As A Plastic Surgeon Arrested After Peforming Botched Nose Job

Florida Woman Who Posed As A Plastic Surgeon Arrested After Peforming Botched Nose Job Miami-Dade Corrections

A Florida woman was arrested last week for pretending to be a plastic surgeon after a victim came forward claiming he’d been permanently disfigured as a result of a nose job she’d performed on him. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Alcalira Jimenez De Rodriguez, 56, was working as a plastic surgeon at Millennium Anti-Aging and Surgery Center in the town of Doral and was in the middle of performing another surgery when police arrived to arrest her.

  1. The former patient went in for a standard rhinoplasty in February 2020. While the procedure initially seemed to have gone off without a hitch, he became concerned when he realized that it still wasn’t healing properly even after months had passed. He went back to Jimnez De Rodriguez in May of that year for a second procedure, and that one was even worse. This time, he noticed that not only was his nose still not healing well but now it was also deformed.
  2. Jiminez De Rodriguez wouldn’t hand over her license number. When the patient asked for her medical license number and her medical malpractice insurance information following the second procedure, the police report states that she refused to hand over the information. He then alerted the police and the Florida Health Department, who investigated and promptly realized what was going on.
  3. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Jiminez De Rodriguez doesn’t have a medical licence. It’s unclear what kind of training she had, if any, to be performing plastic surgeries, and it’s unlikely that the victim that eventually came forward, who’s said to have paid about $2,800 for each of the surgeries, is the only one who had such a bad experience.
  4. Jimenez De Rodriguez is being held at the Miami-Dade County Jail on $5,000 bond. The charges against her include practicing medicine without a license and resisting arrest without violence. The first charge is considered a second-degree felony because of the victim’s disfigurement.
